It’s our last episode of the year! So, as usual, we’re revealing our BOFCA ballots as we discuss our respective Top 10 Films of 2022! Unfortunately, Dave couldn’t make it this week, but we still share his top 10 before digging into each of our own. You can hear Dave’s list starting at 2:55, Megan’s at 14:36, and Evan’s at 47:39. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we’re talking about the winner of our NYE movie poll, Rob Reiner and Nora Ephron’s 1989 rom-com, WHEN HARRY MET SALLY!
We start the show this week by reviewing Claire Scanlon’s impressively unfunny comedy THE PEOPLE WE HATE AT THE WEDDING (2:30), which is about dysfunctional siblings (Kristen Bell and Ben Platt) who reluctantly travel to the UK with their mom (Allison Janney) for their half-sister’s wedding. Next, we delve into Mark Mylod’s delicious social satire/horror film THE MENU (18:48), where a hyper-exclusive dining experience turns into a battle of wits between its mastermind chef (Ralph Fiennes) and an unexpected diner (Anya Taylor-Joy). Then we wrap up with Rian Johnson’s wildly entertaining whodunnit GLASS ONION: A KNIVES OUT MYSTERY (42:10), the much-anticipated sequel to Johnson’s murder mystery hit KNIVES OUT. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about a Patron’s choice, Griffin Dunne’s 1998 film PRACTICAL MAGIC, starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman!
